I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book (entitled The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle pre-publication) without really knowing what it was about. I have a tendency to skim synopses or skip them altogether so I am in for a surprise. I call this literary roulette and it works out all sorts of ways.

But I digress. The moment I started reading, I was hooked. I found the character to be endearing, and the mystery involved and delightful. THEN, it got even better as it was revealed that this is a most original, unusual story. It has a dark, gothic feeling which is also somehow infused with charm and wit. It's like Clue with time travel. It will leave you guessing at every turn, and the prose is lyrical and engaging. You'll have a hard time putting this one down, and probably won't be disappointed with the ending. I wasn't. And I said aloud when I was finished, "WOW". Definitely give this one a read!
